Navy's Mather Named
Lineman of the Week

IANNAPOLIS, Md., (OP) -- Navy
Coach Wayne Hardin calls Greg
Mather, the Associated Press
linesman of the week, "probably,
the best second-string end in the'
country."
Mather was picked AP's top
lineman yesterday primarily be-
cause of his 41-yard field goal
which gave Navy a 15-14 upset
victory over Washington Saturday
and his punts which kept the
Huskies in their own territory
much of the second half.
Hardin says Mather's value to
Navy goes beyond his kicking
ability, in which he is tops on
the squad.
"Mather is probably the best
blocking end we have and is also
very fine on defense," Hardin
commented.

AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo.,
- Air Force says it has Navy's
goat, but is giving it back.
Cadets at the newest service
school produced a billy goat with
a fine set of horns from a hiding
place today and Academy officials
said it would be shipped by air at
once to Annapolis.
This would get the goat back
in time for Navy's game with
Southern Methodist Saturday at
Norfolk, Va.
Air cadets said the goat is the
number one Navy Mascot, Billy
XV, and they've had him since
August. Navy never has officially
admitted Billy XV was missing.

PITTSBURGH - Joe (Flash)
Gordon, who spent his entire
Major League playing career with
two clubs ,signed today as mana-
ger of the Kansas City Athletics
- his third managerial job within
two months.
After a half hour conference
with Parke Carroll, Athletics'
General Manager, Gordon agreed
to a two-year contract for an
estimated $35,000 a year.
Gordon resigned as manager of
the Detroit Tigers on Monday, the
same day the Athletics fired their
manager, Bob Elliott. In August,
Gordon had. figured in an un-
precedented Big League mana-
gerial switch, which sent Gordon
from Cleveland to Detroit and
Jimmy Dykes from Detroit to
Cleveland.

By FRED STEINHART
The defending Baltimore Colts
are off and running in their bid to

Football League history to win
more than three consecutive league

In their first two games they

for the opposition. Sunday they
mauled the Chicago Bears, billed
as strong contenders, 42-7. The
week before they shut out the
Washington Redskins 20-0.
Unitas Leads
As long as the magic right arm
of " quarterback Johnny Unitas
stays intact, the Colts have of-
fensive power at least the equal of
any team in the game. He tossed
for four TP's against the Bears.
Running backs Lenny Moore and
Alan Ameche always offer a threat
and Ameche is a solid blocker on
pass protection.
The receivers have been the
same for the past two years. Ray-
mond Berry, who caught a 27-yard
touchdown pass from Unitas last
Sunday, will contend for top
league receiving honors again.
Jim Mutscheller, the ex-Notre
Dame star, catches the tough
third down passes. He scored Sun-
day on a 43-yard touchdown pass
from Unitas.

veteran. Other defensive backs are
Andy Nelson, Carl Taseff, Milt
Davis, and Johnny Sample who
returned'a kickoff 95 yards against
the Bears.
The line as usual is awesome.
Gene "Big Daddy" Lipscomb, Gino
Marchetti, and Art Donovan are
enough to throw an opposing
passer into a cold sweat. Jim
Parker, once all-America at-Ohio
State buoys a tough but often
unsung offensive line which gives
Unitas the time he needs to
throw.
